Chocolate Frosted Vegan Brownies (oil-free)

Chocolate Frosted Vegan Brownies

Hey guys! 

My mouth has been watering while putting this blog together because OMG, chocolate frosted vegan brownies are finally here! Looking for a healthy vegan brownie that is absolutely delicious while still plant-based, gluten-free and oil-free, stop right here!

You are going to die for this recipe. 

The Frosting

My frosting recipe is made without any refined sugar and is rich, chocolatey, smooth, decadent and beyond heavenly. Sweetened with dates, you won’t have to worry about added sugar in this frosting.

I use medjool dates to sweeten the frosting for that perfect sweetness without being an overpowering sugar-bomb. 

Chocolate Vegan FrostingFrost the brownies with the chocolate frosting after they’ve cooled for the richest vegan brownie you’ll ever have. The best party- you feel as though you are indulging in a sinful treat when in reality this brownie is filled with nutrients. 

The brownies themselves are made with a base of chickpeas! Aka these brownies are #plantprotein and fiber packed. 

I used natural sprinkles from Whole Foods that are actually colored with fruits + veggies. For example, the green sprinkles are dyed with spirulina! How cool?!

The sprinkles are just a fun touch and are totally optional.
